Tread carefully when placing tags in your URL. If you change a post's tags, rename tags, delete tags, and generally change your tag structure over time (as you usually do), you can break every pre-existing backlink pointing to the post. Of course, depending on your purpose for tagging, this might not be so applicable. – Dobry Den Jan 2 '11 at 9:22

You can't do %tags% in wordpress, you will get error.

here is a excerpt from the codex.

Starting Permalinks with %tag% is strongly not recommended for performance reasons
